My name is Sally and I live with my partner in Ripley, Surrey. My mother and I have decided to start our own childminding business working as co-childminders, based at my mother's home in Weybridge (please see profile of Gillian Couzens for more information on "my mother"). I have had a 16 year career as a legal secretary working for various firms of solicitors and also for HMCTS. I have always loved working with children and have felt for the last few years that my career as a legal secretary was not fulfilling me as it used to, so I have decided to go back to working with my first love...children.
Our childcare setting caters for early years education while still maintaining a homely feel. We promote equality, inclusion and diversity in a safe and comfortable environment for children to learn through play. Children are encouraged to experience new things, build self-confidence and develop social skills.
We provide healthy freshly prepared meals, snacks and drinks throughout the day. We have fully equipped and resourced indoor and outdoor play areas.
I have previous experience of working in a school as a teaching assistant, supporting special needs children within the classroom. I also helped out in an after school club for a couple of years and am described as "babysitter B" by my brother for my 5 year old niece (my mother being "babysitter A"). I have been babysitting my niece since she was a very young baby.
I have completed an ANSA Introduction to Childminding and Safeguarding Children training course. I also have a paediatric first aid certificate with training provided by TigerLily and an enhanced DBS certificate. I am a member of both childcare.co.uk and Pacey. All certificates are available to view at our setting.

My daughter has been with Gill and Sally for 5 months now and she absolutely adores them. It has a real home from home feel and I know my little girl is very well looked after, she always comes home immaculately clean and still in the same clothes after a full on day of eating and fun (I’ve no idea how they do it!). It’s a very professional set up and the childcare role is taken very seriously. Food is freshly prepared, and daily updates are provided via an easy to use web app. I cannot recommend them enough.
